Con

The first round is just accepting the challenge
Round 2 is the argument and rebudle
Round 3 is final statement.
Wylted

Pro

I accept, and hope for Con to clarify what they mean by the resolution, so I don't make an argument that isn't relevant to the topic they hoped to debate.

Pro

There are no negative impacts from a kid saying grace before eating his school lunch. Given no negative effects come from allowing a kid to discreetly pray in school, it should be allowed

Students' religious liberties are greater now then before the 1962, 1963 Supreme Court rulings. The Supreme Court has never held that students cannot pray in school. Instead, the Supreme Court has ruled that the government cannot have anything to do with prayer in schools. The government cannot tell students when to pray. The government cannot tell students what to pray. The government cannot tell students that they should pray. The government cannot tell students that prayer is better than no prayer. As long as prayer does not involve the public schools or interfere with education then your good to go.
